Are Nova Esports so strong?
It is difficult to say that Nova Esports is definitely stronger than its opponent. Both finalists were worthy of their place, but as it turned out, the ideas, strategy and preparation, already, of the champions turned out to be better.
For all 4 games in the finals, the picks on both sides were quite good, there are no complaints about the draft. Even more than that, both teams revealed some ideas that were left until the very end.
Most of the games went fairly smoothly, with both teams farming and not much fighting until the late game. Nevertheless, in three games out of four, Long, as a jungler, actively tried to disperse the entire map in favor of his team, which set the pace for the game and imposed his rules on the enemy. And what is very remarkable, it was he who received the MVP three times!
After that, An "Long" Xulong even gave a short comment about his game, "I think I can now say that I'm the best jungler in the world. And I hope to practice even more to become even stronger in the future.”
